So with Xmas around the corner and the 9 year old saying his old Slate PC is very slow and 'wishing it would play Ark' better I have decided to buy/make a gaming system. This is where I need advice from the lovely bit-techers. What can I build for £500, I don't need a keyboard, mouse, monitor or a HDD or Windows, so purely down to Motherboard, CPU, RAM, Case and PSU. It's not going to be supa-dupa system, but something that is good enough to run Ark with it looking good and not jumping frames. Not interested in over clocking and watercooling, so as for a case, anything will work that looks good and is green or with green lights (he loves green!) I am rather out the loop when it comes to GFX and CPU's so any advice is great fully appreciated.
